Many of you may know Lee Rose Emery as the popular blogger at LA City Mom, one of my favorite sites. Lee is also a Campbell Hall School mom who is helping to raise funds to find a cure for pediatric cancer. Lee’s personal message to honor Pablo, a remarkable little boy who died of cancer, and the foundation created in his memory, is inspiring and worthy of our support. Please see below for Lee’s post from LA City Mom:
Here is a family event in February that should not be missed. The Pablove Foundation’s Family Valentine’s Celebration. This day of family friendly crafting, music, food, and fun is so dear to my heart. Pablo Castalez was a pre-school classmate of my children. Two years ago, he lost his year long battle with Wilm’s Tumor cancer. He was six years old. His parents, JoAnn and Jeff have started The Pablove Foundation in his honor, with the mission to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer research and provide programs to enhance the lives of those children living with cancer. Having a charity event that kids can be a part of (and one craft the kids can participate in that day is in making Valentines for kids in the hospital) is an opportunity for all of us to appreciate our good fortune and health, and to take a moment to give and consider the struggle that many families endure. My kids and I will be there, and I hope you can make it too. Details are below:
